Ascend to Leadership: Summit, September 15-17, 2020

Program Overview:

The Ascend to Leadership Program applies an innovative approach by taking a deep dive into developing a strong leader. The program combines traditional classroom instruction, assessments, and virtual work, along with personalized coaching, to create a valuable experience that achieves results. The high level of customized work and coaching focuses on areas of development; each leader will leave the program with a development plan tailored to his or her goals.

Completion of the program takes approximately six months, and is customized around each individual’s learning goals. Participants will begin the program with a launch packet and Hogan Leadership Development Assessment. Next, participants will attend a three-day in-person classroom basecamp to provide the foundation for stronger leadership. From there, participants will be involved in independent work, web-based learning, and individualized coaching. Participants who successfully complete these components will return for a second three-day in-person classroom summit. Finally, all participants will take part in an individualized coaching session and create a development plan to help them achieve their full leadership goals.

How it Works:

The Ascend to Leadership Program is comprised of five main components:

  • Launch packet and Hogan Leadership Development Assessment: At-home pre-work.
  • Basecamp: First three-day in-person class
  • Toolkit & key action packets: A series of virtual work, such as a leadership assessment, coaching debrief, web discussions, and activity packets, completed virtually over 4-6 months.
  • Summit: Second three-day in-person class (this session requires separate registration after completion of Basecamp).
  • Individualized coaching session: Here attendees create a development plan to help them achieve their full leadership goals.

Please see the detailed program outline below.

Program Outline:

The Ascend to Leadership: Hogan Leadership Development Assessment and pre-work, March 2020.

  • Ascend to Leadership: Basecamp Session, March 24-26, 2020
  • Ascend to Leadership: Toolkit & key action packets (virtual), March-September 2020
  • Ascend to Leadership: Summit Session, September 15-17, 2020
  • Ascend to Leadership: Individualized coaching session, TBD

Beginning the Ascent

Participants will begin the program by receiving a launch packet that contains specific details and instructions to guide your way through the program. Participants will also complete the Hogan Leadership Development Assessment, and the results of that assessment will be used during the individualized parts of the program. Participants will then attend a three-day in-person class with colleagues across the West, where a deep dive into the leadership foundation will occur. After the class, participants will be scheduled with a coach to receive an individualized debrief of their Hogan Assessment and begin developing an individualized leadership plan.

Toolkit and Key Action Packets

Over the next few months, with the help of a learning facilitator, each participant will work on specific key action packets. Each key action virtual packet provides lessons, tools, examples, and step-by-step application instructions. Completion and achievement of each key action packet is tracked and reported. Participants will earn their entrance into the Summit Session by completing a certain number of Key Actions based on their individual leadership plan. During this time, there will also be a series of three web discussions to help connect what was learned at the Basecamp Session with the individualized work in the key action packets.

Reaching the Summit

For those who have completed the basecamp session and met the requirements of the key action packets, the final step is reaching the summit. In this final three-day class, participants will tie everything together and learn how to apply what was learned. After the second class, all participants will finish with an individualized coaching session, and leave the program with an individualized development plan to help them achieve their full potential as a strong leader.
